The Essentials - "You're Too Rude"

Live at Station 10, Montreal,Quebec, Canada 1980

The Essentials were an 80s Montreal-based alternative punk band with Mick Lynes on guitar, lead vocals; Vava Vol on her Farfisa Fast Five organ, lead and back vocals; Carlos Soria on bass guitar and Richard (Rich) Lacoste on drums. Later on in the 80s, Mick would move to London, England, Richard would join the franco-rock band "Les Parfaits Salauds" and Carlos would join his brother's band "The Nils".

Some time in 1979-1980, we recorded "Can't Afford" and "You're Too Rude" and I was the only band member who managed to keep a cassette copy of these two songs over the years. With the help of Mick Lynes and Aaron McIntosh, we were able to recently re-engineer "You're Too Rude", so here it is!
